There is a skunk smell throughout my house, both inside and around perimeter, since my plumber did some rough piping work. Could the smell be related to the plumbing or should I assume a skunk got into the crawl space and died? I am new to the neighborhood, and I am currently still working on the house, so I haven't moved in yet. I don't know if skunks are common in the area, but I haven't seen any - day or night when I am there. HELP PLEASE !!! I CAN'T TAKE THE SMELL !!!

I had skunks living under my house, and I sent to Canisteo, NY for Fox Urine Powder. I sprinkled the stuff around my house and a little in my cellar, and the skunks IMMEDIATELY vamooshed and I haven't smelled from them since. Just go to, or send to 38 West Main Street, P.O. Box 101, Canisteo, NY, 14823. The stuff works great, and I still have a half a can left in case they return in the fall. Doesn't hurt them a bit, just convinces them a fox is in the area and they might want to leave.

Be careful where you spread it, though, it has quite a potent smell of its own, but doesn't wash away with the rain.

When you have a skunk smell in your house open windows, put fans on, change filters in Ac/Heater.
